The control of food contaminants in industrial processes represents an essential quality management measure and encompasses a wide scope of different analytical techniques and analytical endpoints. Besides classical topics such as toxic metals and process contaminants such as MCPD, new topics such as the use of BIG DATA for the control of food production processes will be presented.
The invited plenary speakers will provide an update on the science of the selected topics, with emphasis on progress in analytical techniques and strategies to detect various contaminants. International experts from food industry, academia and regulatory agencies will share theirconcepts of risk assessment and risk management. In addition to the presentations of distinguished invited speakers, the organising committee welcomes proposals for oral contributions as well as poster submissions of all fields of food science. Contributions can be linked to the topic of the SFSM or can cover a broader scope under the umbrella of the food sciences. The posters will be shortly presented during two scheduled oral Poster session.
During the symposium, the best poster and best young scientist poster will be awarded. These awards, kindly sponsored by the SFC and VKCS (ACCS), will be presented during the closing session of the meeting.
The Swiss Food Science Meeting (SFSM 2019 is the 4th) addresses key emerging issues related to food science. This meeting is therefore an excellent opportunity for scientists from academia, industry and government laboratories or institutions to network and share knowledge in this rapidly progressing field.
